Keith Thurman – Boxer: The sinewy 5’8″ Thurman is the complete package with explosive power, lightning hand-speed and a multi-faceted defense. Thurman is a powerfully built puncher/boxer that looks for the knockout from the opening bell with punches in bunches. Despite his reputation as an all-out offensive buzzsaw the Florida fighter has shown good head-movement, footwork and boxing skill.  Thurman fires a stiff jab (71″ reach) and is very mobile and athletic on his feet.  On the downside, Thurman has a tendency to telegraph his punches and look amateurish. Thurman has a solid chin but is susceptible to cuts and swells. Thurman was badly hurt to the body by light-hitting Luis Collazo making his resiliency to the gut a question mark. Comes in off a long layoff and sub par performance. Keith Thurman vs Shawn Porter Fight Odds have Thurman as a -200 favorite ($100 Bet Pays Out $150)

Shawn Porter – Boxer: Heavily muscled 5’7″ pressure fighter with excellent strength, power, body punching and durability. Can box on his toes behind a pesky jab (69″ reach) with darting in-and-out movement. Knows how to move his head in a Mike Tyson-esque manner to create angles when coming forward. Throws lots of leather and is a tenacious pitbull in the trenches. Has very good stamina for a musclebound fighter and can wear down opponents with his strength. Has fast hands and can deliver debilitating bodypunches. Excellent athlete with great conditioning and heart. On the downside, Porter is short and can be a bit awkward at times. Porter can be a bit too bouncy on his toes, making him vulnerable to off balance knockdowns and huge punches. Porter was outboxed by #1 contender Kell Brook rather easily, exposing his lack of reach and level of experience. Comes in off a long layoff.
